Solution for internet...

Hi everyone,


Like all of you, I am really disappointed with lack of wi-fi on the phone. I just wished they added wi-fi on the phone.

But nothing can be changed.


I was looking at ways we can get the internet on the phone without subscribing to the data plan or in scenarios where there is lack of appropriate carrier coverage.


One thing that struck my mind was using a wifi-micro sd card.

Other option would be to connect the blackberry to my laptop and use the laptop internet(reverse modem tethering).



Does anyone know if above things might work.
